Elton John may be a silly old queen (see previous post), but a pair of real queens are calling Asbury Park home these days who would give him a real run for his money. Though not in the silly department.
The Queen of Versailles and, well, the Queen of Versailles, are both in residence at The Showroom this weekend.
One is a documentary chronicling the struggles of the super-rich in the wake of the financial crash of 2008. The other is a bodice-ripping period drama about a real queen, Marie Antoinette.
And, the film tackles her rumored bisexual tendencies head-on. In fact, the romance in the movie comes courtesy of Léa Seydoux (above) as one of Marie’s ladies-in-waiting, “seemingly innocent but quietly working her way into her mistress’s special favors…” press materials say.
